    This DVD works on a number of levels. It's an English major's analysis of the books, and also a personal, first-person commentary by Dr. Geo Travarthen on her own relationship with the stories and their mythical content. In addition, it gives us a tour of Edinburgh, perhaps the most photogenic of all cities, whose medieval spires certainly inspire magic. Same with the dramatic countryside and cloud formations, all lending a theatricality to the proceedings. But the real power of this DVD is Travarthen's skill at placing the stories squarely within our shared history, as well as British literary tradition. It should be no surprise to anyone who loves the Harry Potter books that they tap into a deep reservoir of cultural and spiritual memory, perhaps innate within us, maybe learned along the way. If you're a Harry Potter fan (or Joseph Campbell or Carlos Castaneda) and you're someone who thinks analysis enhances the enjoyment of fiction rather than destroying it, this DVD is for you.
